I've been having really bad back pain for a while now. I saw a spine specialist who had me do an mri and I'm seeing him today to discuss the results. another doctor I spoke to looked at the results and said it might be arthritis but he can't be sure. I don't want to have arthritis obviously but part of me would be relieved if I found out that's what I have because then at least I'd have an explanation for my pain. has anyone else dealt with this sort of situation before?

      I am so sorry friend. I am in the same boat. Nothing ever shows up on my tests so I always feel crazy.

      I am so sorry to hear that. There is a reason for your pain. Just because a doctor didn't see anything in the results doesn't mean you're crazy or doomed. This is frustrating and feels like a set back. But I promise you, if you're in pain there's a reason. If you need more encouragement feel free to message me. Praying for you 🙏

      update: there is nothing wrong with my back, I am just doomed to suffer

      This is soo true. You just want answers and even it’s a terrible lifelong condition you at least know why. For me since no treatment has worked my doctor thought that I had Munchuser’s basically said that I was faking. So I hope that you get some type of result friend

      I understand I have those same feelings. We don’t “want” the condition we just want an explanation for the pain. I totally get it.

      Dude I'm literally in almost the exact same situation. Going to a doctor today to discuss the possibility of arthritis/rheumatoid arthritis.
